Katie Holmes

Scientology

Is Watching Me

7/1/2012 8:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0701_cars_splashKatie Holmes believes Scientology now views her as a threat to the organization and has put a team on her tail ... sources close to the actress tell TMZ.

We're told Katie believes in recent weeks -- as the discord between her and Tom Cruise grew -- Scientology has been following her moves, especially in New York City.

This does not appear to be the mind of a paranoid person. People who have photographed Katie multiple times tell TMZ there have been several "mysterious" men and vehicles around Katie's apartment and following her when she's out.

Specifically ... a white Cadillac Escalade and black Mercedes SUV (see above) have been seen near Katie's NYC apartment for the past week.

FYI -- there is a publication that has put a tail on Katie, but the people doing that are separate from the people Katie believes have been dispatched from Scientology.

It is unclear if the two vehicles that have been constantly spotted near Holmes' pad are from Scientology or from the publication.

If Katie is able to keep the divorce in New York -- where courts generally like to award sole legal custody to one parent or the other when there is conflict -- proof that she's being tailed could help her case.

We put in a call to Scientology ... so far, no word back.

Anyone notice the caps on the dash of the Black SUV? I think they say NYPD.

Katie is not paranoid. Scientology has had a tail on her since she "joined," as they never trusted her. I find it interesting that she supposedly was able to secretly rent her own apartment in NY. I'm sure Scientology knew about the apartment from the very beginning.

I once dated a girl who joined so that she could cleanse her of toxins in her body, then she quit scientology and they sent goons over to her house a couple of times till i threatened to kick their asses!

Must be hard to seem earnest and sincere when your religion was created by a science fiction writer. It was never real, never intended for anything but what it is... to give men excuses to do anything they wanted and to mold women into meek and subservient chattels who never speak. I have a feeling they are running scared of Katie. She knows enough she can bring their house of cards down.
I also think Scientology has reached its 'best before date'. It's old, stale and should be pulled from the shelf and tossed into the garbage with a sign... DO NOT RECYCLE this can of worms.

Nobody's following Katie except the paps.
Katie is a controlling dictatorial woman who wants to steal Tom's child away from him.
Katie is two-faced with her method of actions regarding this divorce, manipulative, vindictive, selfish, and cruel.
Pulling Scientology into it is just a way for Katie-supporters to blow smoke and distract people from seeing the real actions happening behind the smoke...Katie being vindictive ;)

They want Katie to know they are watching her now. duh. They want to scare her into keeping quiet. Its not illegal to drive on the street behind someone but the message is clear. WE ARE WATCHING YOU. Katie has been there long enough to get the message they are sending. her family will be a target too.

Ironically, this is just the crap that Holmes wants her and her daughter to get away from.

Everything Cruise does is self-promotion. I have always found him to be superficial ie... the couch jumping... it is all about him. His ego is bigger than his ability. Three women thought he was their romantic hero... until they married him. I don't think Katie blindsided him. He's still in Iceland making his movie. If he was unsuspecting, and sincerely in love, why would he not make a beeline for NY to plead his case? Oh yeah... there's that ego thing again.

Of course they are, that's what they do. Spend some of that money you've got hiring a massive security team, with background checks on every one of them.
I'd be crapping myself if I were her

Well if they are Scientologists, they aren't very inconspicuous in those vehicles. Maybe those are her security. I don't know why, I just want to think those crazed Scientologists are more clever than that.

In one car, there's two NYPD hats, in another, a guy is reading about the divorce... something tells me it's security in one, paparazzi in another.

If you don't think the L Ron Moonies have been following her since Day One, you're either incredibly naive, or a member of the CULT (it is NOT a religion). And if you're a member, you KNOW they are, but you've been brainwashed into lying for the "greater good".

I have a friend who merely dated a celebrity cultist, and she was followed so blatantly when she ended the relationship (after 2 months) she was able to prove it and got a restraining order.

They ALL lack a very basic human trait - TRUST. And why wouldn't they? They are clearly not trustworthy themselves, so how can they possibly trust "outsiders"?

Go get him/them, Katie!!!!!
